School Resources

  • Counseling Services

    District 204’s school counseling services are the foundation of a planned program of secondary education, encompassing all facets of college and career planning, academic decision-making, and personal-social development. Our Counseling & Student Support Division’s comprehensive services complement other quality educational programs within the school and provide further commitments to the intellectual, physical, social, cultural, career, and occupational development of the individual student as they move into our community and world. Students may make an appointment with their counselor via email or by stopping by the Student Services Office at their campus. You may also visit the School Counseling portion of Student Resources tab on the district’s website for additional information. https://www.lths.net/domain/783

      19. Mandated Reporting

        Student safety is of paramount importance to the District 204 Board of Education, administration, faculty, and staff. As mandated reporters, District employees must report suspected child maltreatment immediately to the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) when they have reasonable cause to believe that a child known to them in their professional or official capacity may be an abused or neglected child. Child abuse is the maltreatment of a child under the age of 18, which can be physical, sexual, or emotional, including by a parent/guardian or an adult in the role of caretaker. Child neglect includes the failure to provide adequate supervision, food, clothing, shelter, medical treatment, or other basics for a child, as well as abandonment without a proper plan of care. The following procedures have been established to protect the safety and well-being of our students.

        Student Responsibilities - When a child believes that they have been victimized, they should immediately seek the help of an adult whom they trust, such as a teacher, counselor, social worker, parent/guardian, Assistant Principal, School Resource Officer, or a building administrator. Students who are aware that a peer has been abused or neglected also are encouraged to forward information to a trusted adult. If the student does not feel there is an adult they can trust, they should immediately call the abuse hotline number listed below.

        Staff Responsibilities – Any District employee who suspects or receives knowledge that a student may be an abused or neglected child or, for a student aged 18 through 21, an abused or neglected individual with a disability, must notify DCFS via the child abuse hotline. District employees receive training regarding this responsibility.

        For additional information, please refer to Board Policy 5:90 Abused and Neglected Child Reporting.
